When you’re young, this song is life-changing. It’s, like, you seriously want a hippopotamus. And you want it for Christmas.
But as we get older, we start to realize the impracticality of this wish:
-Is your home suitable? Hippopotamuses spend a large amount of time in water such as rivers, lakes and swamps. They eat mostly grass. LARGE quantities of grass.
-Although hippos might look a little chubby, they can easily outrun a human.
-Hippos can be extremely aggressive, especially if they feel threatened.
-They are regarded as one of the most dangerous animals in Africa.
-Hippos typically live for around 45 years.
So, is there any chance you might change your Christmas wish now??!!
